Olie Berlic imports the first three of these. His website, belezapura.com, is a great cachaça resource.

Beleza Pura ($29)

A terrific white (i.e., unaged) cachaça with a scent that recalls fresh sugarcane and cut grass.

Rochinha 5-Year ($40)

Cerejeira wood gives this amber-colored sipping cachaça distinctive smoke notes.

Armazem Vieira Rubi ($50)

Rubi, an eight-year-old sipping cachaça, is smooth, with green-olive aromas.

Mãe de Ouro ($30)

This tangy, dry white cachaça is complex and focused.

Cabana Cachaça ($35)

This white cachaça is peppery and clean—a good introduction for vodka drinkers.
